SQLite Embedded Database
SQLite Performance Summary
The following charts show the performance of SQLite (in green) relatively to other JPA/DBMS combinations (in gray).Position #1 on the X-Axis (the fastest) is about 100 times faster than position #32 (the slowest).
The configurations in which SQLite has been tested are listed in the following table:
|Database + JPA Provider||Normalized Score|
100 - Best, 0 - Worst
1 - Best, 32 - Worst
|1||Hibernate with SQLite embedded||2.7||27 (out of 32)||6|
|2||EclipseLink with SQLite embedded||1.9||29 (out of 32)||36|
SQLite is an embedded database, written in C. Its first version was released in 2000.
SQLite is in the public domain (no license).
JPA support for SQLite is available (unofficially) only by Hibernate and EclipseLink, but the EclipseLink support seems unusable (too many test failures with EclipseLink).
In this benchmark SQLite 3.7.2 (which was released in 2010) has been tested.
